October was a busy month for our supporters in Westmoreland County! For the 13th consecutive year, Westmoreland Walks blew us away with the Breast Cancer Walk and “Get your PINK On” awareness events throughout their communities. In total, Westmoreland Walks raised over $42,000 for the PA Breast Cancer Coalition and our programs and services for breast cancer survivors! The PBCC would like to thank the Westmoreland Walks Board of Directors President Kathy Brown, PBCC Board Member Kelly Urbani, and ALL of the ladies who work tirelessly on this event throughout the year to make it such a success! These volunteers truly continue to make a difference one step at a time for survivors, families, researchers and breast cancer advocates! This event also inspires others in the Westmoreland County community to contribute during breast cancer awareness month.
Greater Latrobe Aqua Club
For the past 5 years, the Greater Latrobe Aqua Club has held a Swim-a-Thon, with proceeds benefiting the PBCC. This year, under the leadership of club President Beth Jackson, they donated $2,313 from their event! Westmoreland County has now grown to host a whole handful of annual events that benefit the PBCC! We are grateful for this tight-knit, community-minded region in Western PA!
